Time to CompleteUnder an hour
- 2 bandanas
- Pinking shears
How to Make Pillows
Place the bandanas on top of each other wrong side facing inwards, fold the bandanas in half and cut out a half heart shape.
Fold the hearts open keeping the two bandanas on top of each other. Use pinking shears to cut a fringe around the heart shaped bandanas. The fringe pieces should be at least 6.5 cm long and 2.5 cm wide.
Fold the fringe over and make a small slit on the fold. You’ll use the slit to “weave” the edges of the pillow, so the smaller the better.
Turn the the fringe strips up and squish them into a little sausage and then pull them down, through the slit.
Tug gently to tighten. Continue weaving the fringe and periodically flip your heart over to make sure you haven’t missed any lonely little fringe pieces
Leave the last five fringe pieces, stuff the heart and then finish off the pillow by weaving the last few pieces.
